Christian Dior Fall 2012
July 17, 2012
Surrounded by mass-fashion-crazed hysteria, Raf Simons debuts his first haute couture collection for Christian Dior. And what a collection. Simons both expands upon classic Dior style elements, such as the Bar jacket, floral motifs, and the iconic ball gown, and infuses his own sense of polish and penchant for precise construction. From the simple, striking bodices to the chic peplums over black cigarette pants, from the rich red hues to delicate shades of pink, from the plunging necklines to the elegant array of collars, each look is unique, modern, and utterly exquisite. With astonishing accuracy, Raf Simons aptly combines his own avant-garde aesthetic with the timeless, classic beauty reminiscent of 1950′s Christian Dior.
